I have a HP laptop pavilion g6 i believe its running on window 8.1
The system is slow to warm up..I recently uninstalled my avg security due to it not updating and this error listed above occured a week later. I apparently have a full internet connection but nothing happens when i try to connect to google chrome. Links from my start menu appear to be working if i want to check my email or facebook but not if i just want to surf the web. This is all i use my laptop for.
I have relatively new PC with Windows 8.1 but recently I am getting a message on start up that "Windows could not connect to Group Policy service" . This then asks me to look at the Event log. I notice that the Event log has " Special log on " every time I log on . Are theses messages related ? Is this normal ? Have I a bug of some description? I have ran Norton 360 and malwarebytes - nothing reported.
the " toshiba service station " recommended an update called " bios update version 1.50 for qosmio x70/75 " and they said it is recommended so i did download and he said dont remove the cord or anything so i did that and installed it and everything was going smoothly but when he finished the update and was restarting it shut down and didnt boot up again. whenever i click the power button the keyboards and power button lits up for a second and then the laptop shuts down it is windows 8 and it does not boot up for me to go into the bios menu
So I've been having this problem for days now, two tasks named Service Host: Local Service(Network Restricted) and Service Host: Local Service(No Network) keep using up ALL of my cpu, theyre usually accompanied by any app I have open, so my task manager is basically like this for example:
Service Host: Local Service(Network Restricted) 40% cpu usage Skype 29% cpu usage Service Host: Local Service(No Network) 26% cpu usage
If I close skype, the usage goes down to 2 percent for a brief second and then any other app I have open launches up instead of skype and uses up all of my cpu.
I've tried several virus scans and I've done my best to clean up the system but I still have this problem
what is the windows virtual disk service? never heard of it before...
friend of mine on windows 8 saw it in his event log and he wants to know what it is, so..it falls to me to ask as he's not got regular internet access... that and I end up doing all his maintenance work for him somehow... *shrugs*
What has happened is that when I first started up my laptop this morning, it seems the audio is disabled. Along with this, the wireless connection is also disabled. Windows attempts to fix both of these problems, but only fixes the wireless. I've restarted multiple times to no avail, and each time, the wireless connection must be fixed by Windows. I've had this laptop for about a month, nothing has ever gone wrong.
when I go on Youtube, every video I attempt to watch stutters around for the first few seconds and/or goes directly to an error screen. I'm sure this has to be something with flash or something in general, considering it just started occurring with these other problems. I'm hoping I won't have to backup files and restore the laptop to the factory default, I was an idiot and deleted the only system restore point I had from a few days ago. I completely forgot system restore points only effect installed programs and Windows files.
Here is some more specific information towards my audio problem -
This is what happens when I attempt to start Windows Audio in Services.
It seems Windows 8.1 hates me, and my search indexing service is not running. I have checked services and it shows stopped. When I try to run the service, it says "Windows could not start the Windows Search service on Local Computer. Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."
I have not removed this file, so I don't know what would cause this? I've attached a picture for a visual reference.
As a side note, this also affects my searching ability in Outlook 2013 64 bit. I cannot search for anything, as I do not get any results. I can search my PC for items by using the top right hand search box. I began looking into this because I could not search in outlook.
Noticed that Microsoft Security Essentials had not received definition updates in 5 days. Tried to update manually through MSE interface and could not connect to server. Tried to find updates using Windows Update and received an error that the Windows Update Service failed to load and need to re-start.
Restarted - No results
Went to Administrative Tools > Services to restart the update service. - No Results
Downloaded the Fix-it from here: [URL] .... and these are the results.
Also, not sure if its related, but the startup sequence for my has been different for the last week. Below is the difference.
Normal Power On: Power on > Dell Logo > Peripheral devices power on > Windows Logo > Windows Login Screen
New (and strange) Power On: Power on > Dell Logo > Peripheral Devices power on > Windows Logo > Peripheral Devices power off and screen goes black > 5 second pause > Peripheral Devices Power On > Windows Login Screen

I am trying out the x64 version of windows 8.1 update on a fresh install. The printer I have is a HP710c and the drivers are provided in windows both 32 bit and 64 bit. Printer works fine in the 32 bit version but nothing happens on the 64 bit OS. Documents go to the spooler then just disappear as if being printed but arent.
Also the spooler seems to fall over when I send a document to the printer or try to print a test page. Tried the trouble shooter and changed the settings on the print spooler service to always restart after error.
The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded. (Window 8)
Today when I tried to use my laptop, I got an error when attempting to log on with my profile. It states:
"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded."
I am using a different PC right now, of course. I had Googled the error, but none of the solutions (thus far) will work in my predicament. It is a Windows 8 PC, so I cannot access the system BIOS in order to perform a system restore, cause unfortunately, it goes straight to the log on screen(Which is become SOLID BLANK COLOR). I don't have a second profile on the system, either. I can't find any way to access the BIOS, Settings, Admin. Profile, or anything.
(SOLID BLANK COLOR) the back ground image for the log in screen is a solid color and not an actual image, anymore.
I can't access the start menu to open the CMD, because I cannot log into my profile and there is no other profile on the PC, besides Administrator ... Which is, unfortunately, hidden. I cannot make it visible, because I'd have to log in to accomplish such a task ...
The problem is not that I am incompetent and cannot conjure a new profile or complete simple tasks on a computer. My predicament seems to be that I cannot access anything. I need to log onto my profile in order to reach the CMD, or any other settings for that matter. Unless there's some, very well hidden, way to run CMD from the log in screen. I know that there is a minuscule detail that I am overlooking, but I cannot find it.
If there's any way to access CMD, BIOS, or anything at the log in screen.
When I opened mu laptop (I'm using ASUS) = Its going STRAIGHT to the BLANK SOLID Screen and There's that. Nothing.... I cannot find anyway how to log in using safe mode and try anyway boot using f1 or anything....
IMPORTANT Problem: didnt's have a cd Windows 8, just found out this problem, didnt even made another account... and other PC is using win7...
my WLAN Autoconfig, windows keeps telling me that the service isn't running - I've noticed when I run Services.msc that it's usually not on, so I start it up which seemed to have solved the problem yesterday but today - not so much...
So now it's not showing visible wireless networks (all working fine on the network with other pc's on xp), doesn't seem to respond to going into flight mode etc.
All drivers are up to date for the laptop (it's probably only a couple of months old).
While trying to add folders to the Search Index, I was informed the Windows Search process was not started. When I go to the Services Console and attempt to manually start, I am given the error:
"Windows could not start the Windows Search service on Local Computer.
Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."
So I opened an command prompt with administrative level access to run sfc and received the following error after it was complete:
"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windirLogsCBSCBS.log. For example C:WindowsLogsCBSCBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios."
The CBS.log file is too large to upload to here or paste into pastebin, so here is a dropbox upload of it:
What other way, aside from a repair install, do I have to fix my missing files and services?

I know of two ways to search. Neither is working for me. Indexing service is active.
1) Using Modern UI (see screenshot)
Good : finds things including file contents
Bad : Searches cannot be saved. No advanced options like (type of data: file, outlook etc..), size, date...File types associated with Internet Explorer are opened in Modern UI IE not in Desktop IE. Every time a file is opened, the search results vanish.
2) Using Explorer (see screenshot)
Good : It has everything the Modern UI search lacks (advanced options, save searches etc.)
Bad : Doesn't find things (file content wise). For example the file in the screenshot is on my desktop. It takes minutes and then finds nothing.
I am just built a new pc and installed and updated all drivers properly. But it keeps crushing and most common bsod is "Ntfs_File_System" and "Service_Exception_Not_Handled". I searched almost all of similar forum post and i still get bsod's. İ have tried to run Memtest86 and it couldnt find any error in rams. Sometimes data corruption occured in my several files and i have ran HD TUNE to find any bad sector but it was ok too. I have done all i can and it still crushes 2-3 times a day.

I'm setting up a new laptop running Windows 8.1. I keep finding the Windows Media Network Sharing Service keeps starting up when the PC is otherwise idle and running at 90% + CPU load for long periods. There is no demand for media streaming when the process is running.
What is this process for? Can I disable it or reconfigure it to reduce the CPU load?
I have spoken twice to Dell Support on my brand new Dell 17 7737 and I keep getting "Service Tag is Not supported" when I try to go to the factory installed 3rd party software re-install support page. Neither time, and both of them were really lengthy calls, could not resolve the issue.
What gives, a brand new computer is not supported.
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. I think this was "Application information" service.
The problem is that now I can't run app called Turbo Service Manager to backup, services.msc, regedit, elevated cmd to use "net start", msconfig, even *.reg files won't launch. I can't launch Safe Mode through metro because my USB mouse and keyboard disconnects at the moment I should choose "4".
I am using Dell Optiplex 3010 in my office.There are around 40 systems and all have same issue. Config is as follow
Windows 8 Genuine 64 bit 2GB DDR 3 Dell Optiplex 3010
Now the problem is there is one service Service Host: Local Network Restricted it consumes 100% disk usage and computer starts acting. I have to manually kill this process from task manager around 4-5 times to end it.
